Update: No Irwin Role for Crowe

by
September 26, 2006

In an update to some news last week as well as discussed on this week's podcast, Russell Crowe confirmed (via a ComingSoon.net interview) that what was said about him playing Steve Irwin was completely false. He had some pretty harsh things to say about it:

"There's no truth to that whatsoever," Crowe said adamantly. "That's one of those appalling pieces of sh*t that come out of the press. While my friend's body is still warm, I'm being accused of doing commerce over his grave, and it absolutely disgusts me."

"Should there be a movie about Steve? For sure," Crowe went on about his good friend, "What an incredible and unique life he led. His childhood growing up with his mum and dad in a reptile park, but his ambitions turning that simple reptile park into the greatest zoo in Australia, and from my individual perspective, the place that really cares about the animals. What people really don't understand about Steven is Steven was, first and foremost, a conservationist, probably the most individually active conservationist in the world. What he stood for was far more than being the funny guy on TV. Serious people at serious universities realized who he really was."

Thanks for clearing that up ComingSoon.net and shame on the bastards who originally posted the completely fake announcement.
